Endicott Saxophone Player Takes Place Among Stars

Posted: Updated:
BINGHAMTON, N.Y. -

Family and friends unveiled a star in honor of Richard "Dick" DePofi at the Forum Theatre in Binghamton on Tuesday. DePofi's star will be mounted on the Wall of Fame, where many of his past band-mates are already memorialized.

DePofi is remembered as quiet, with a sense of humor, and a musical style all his own.

"Had his own sound and his own style," says friend and pianist Doug Beardsley, "I mean, great player."

Beardsley says he played a 17 month long gig with DePofi at a venue on State Street.
